English summary: The archaeological exploration of El-Deir (Kharga Oasis, Western Egyptian desert) was undertaken by a French team, starting in 1998. During the course of the ten years of work on the site, five necropolises were discovered. A first ensemble is presented in this volume, which will be followed by five more. The study of the human remains, skeletal and mummified, is combined with analysis of the material constituting the funerary furnishings wood, basketry, ceramics, textiles. These studies contain a wealth of information on a local population whose funerary customs, which can be observed from the Persian period to the 5th century AD, completely belong to the Egyptian tradition. The tombs, mirrors of everyday life, clearly show the differences of lifestyle within this population, which on the whole led modest lives of agriculture and handcraft. French text.
French description:
L'exploration archéologique du site dEl-Deir (oasis de Kharga, désert occidental d'Égypte) a été entreprise par une équipe française en 1998. Au cours de dix années de travail sur le site, cinq nécropoles ont été découvertes. Un premier ensemble est présenté dans ce volume, qui sera suivi de cinq autres. Létude des restes humains, momies et squelettes, est associée à celle du matériel constituant le mobilier des tombes, bois, vannerie, céramique, textiles. Ces études apportent une quantité dinformations sur une population locale dont les usages funéraires, observables sur une longue durée (de lépoque perse aux IVe - Ve siècle de notre ère) sinscrivent tout à fait dans la tradition égyptienne. Les tombes, miroir de la vie quotidienne, mettent en évidence les différences de niveau de vie au sein de cette population, dans lensemble modeste, dont les activités étaient principalement agricoles et artisanales.
